Help!
Radial otter plans 80"+

The only single engine Dehavilland I haven't built yet is the single engine Otter!
I have a power system that will easily deliver 1000/1200watts on 6S spinning a 15/8/3 blade prop.
I'm looking for plans for something around 80 - 84". Really good 3 views would also help. I've never drawn up plans before, but might be tempted. I'd like to include the unique flap system the Otter has.
This will definitely be a project for next winter, if no plans are available, I would try to draw up my own by hand.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Doug B

Trackerman Thanks a lot for the 3-5views. I may have to draw out this plane myself as my budget likely won't allow the luxury of buying plans to my proposed scale. I'm thinking 84" wingspan, weight under 10lbs on 6s
I'll have to do some searching for flap designs, the Otter flaps are rather special and a big part of why it flies as it did. I have a friend with a miniature cnc router that could maybe cut me the flap guides etc from light aluminum or G10. Thanks for spending the time to look this up, I'm trying to get a bunch of spring "things that need done" out of the way so I can look in ernest. Doug B

Doug,
Your welcome. Will see what else I can find in my spare time about the Otter. Meanwhile it may be worth contacting this mob at the attached link who do a STOL kit for the Otter. http://www.stolairus.com

Cheers

You could see if anyone has a set of plans for the Unionville Hobbies Otter, which has a 96" span.

Yes, I missed out on a full Unionville kit about 4 yrs for $200. The kit had been barely started, huge box wouldn't fit into my plane hauler behind the motorcycle . I tried to catch a OS member with a Volks bus but missed him by 2-3 minutes. Should have moved faster!!
I'd really like to build this plane at around 80" and use a power system I already own.
The Unionville plans, scaled down might work fine. Thanks for the suggestion Doug B
